talk about one of the many projects that wasn't talked about today. including second street and want to echo concerns about the project being delayed yet again. this is a situation where we have a study within a study, which is usually not a great situation to be in. we support the work that this body is doing to try to move that project forward and thank you for your concern there. i also want to point out that the maintenance continues to be an issue for bicycle facilities. there needs to be better signage and marking many places. that's a need for better maintenance across the board. the category in the packet you saw continues to be delayed and reduced. so we ask you to pay more attention to helping the city increase it's maintenance, budgeting and work. thank you. >> thank you very much. is there any other member of the
public that would like to speak, please come forward. >> hi, good afternoon. supervisors, i just wanted to point out one thing because this is a public forum, the better market street project is holding pop ups up and down market street every friday this month. basically we have retaken over the kiosks and have public information out there on friday between 12 and 2:00 p.m. this coming friday is at market and powell. near the cable car turn around. it's been an incredibly interesting experience because we reach people that don't normally come to city with public forums. you get the folks that live around there, work around there, tourists and really reaching different people in different sections and getting a much better understanding of how market street simple i want to
point out that department of public works just repaved the bike lanes. we are doing short term improvements. lastly, i want to make sure everybody is aware of how important market street really is. next week, we need market street as the giants go up and down on the parade there. we will be able to be known nationally about market street and their celebration parade. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. is there any other member of the public that would like to speak that has not spoken? seeing none? public comment is closed. let me say that we ask members of the public to be respectful. we believe in free speech. there's a way to meaningful comments without saying things about women and people of color. if you can please call the income item. >> item eight.
introduction of new items. >> colleagues, any new items for future discussion? >> why don't we open up to public comment on any new items. seeing none, public comment is closed. item nine. public comment. now is an opportunity for members of public to speak on anything not on the agenda but within the jurisdiction of the authority. >> good afternoons, supervisors. members of the public. you know there's an old addage and it goes like this. light threatens darkness. do you understand that concept? it's going to come and haunt you day after day if you keep playing the race card in this city. thank you very much. if anything needs to happen in
this city, stop playing the race card. if you want to progress in market street, stop playing the race card. if you want traffic calming on market street, stop playing the race card. it's so old. nobody is hear even listening to you guys and giving public comment. normally, this chamber would be full. before you came into the city, we had good government and projects that went forward on time every time. a city that came together and if you can't see that because you're so identified with diversity, then you need to go get your eyes checked. we're so tired of it in this city. i would get away with anything with your attitude. it's not diverse enough. you could take over any country with these type of politics
because it's about victimizing its very own citizens. biting the hand that feeds you. if you think that that has any sustainability in this city or any city in the world, you're absolutely deluded. thank you very much. i grew up with a father from the middle east and brothers that were diverse as any family on earth. but i tell you what, the politics in this city is so bad, that it has to change. thank you. >> seeing no other speaker, public comment is closed. if you can call the next item. >> 10 adjournment. >> two words, go giants. meeting adjourned. >> the envirok
livens it with color, light, and the movement. three large woven soldiers are suspended. these are activated by custom air flow program. >> i channeled air flow into each of these forms that makes it move ever so slightly. and it is beating like a heart. if-0 when as of the forces of nature moving around us every second. >> shadow patterns reflect the shapes of the hanging sculptures.
the new terminal also features a children's play areas. both of the market the exploratory n.y. -- exploratorium. the offer travelers of all ages a playful oasis. using high quality plywood, they created henches shaped like a bird wings that double as musical instruments. serving as a backdrop is a mural featuring images of local birds and san francisco's famous skyline. >> in the line between that is so natural, you can see birds and be in complete wilderness. i really like that about this. you could maybe get a little
snapshot of what they are expecting. >> it is an interactive, keck sculpture that is interacted with by the visitor. >> they are a lot about and they fall down the belt. it moves the belt up, and if you it moves the belt up, and if you educator. for 20 years i was executive directoroq for the chiensbo1x"÷ education committee where i helped renelster 100,000 immigrants to vote in san francisco. participate in our democracy. and i have been active for more participation in our
